The 2010 North American International Auto Show is just one month away, and Toyota has just released a set of teaser images and information about a new dedicated hybrid concept which will be unveiled at Cobo Hall in January.

There isn't a whole lot of information to gather from these teaser shots, but it's obvious that the new hybrid will be much smaller than the current Prius, potentially based on the Toyota/Scion iQ concept from this year's New York Auto Show.

We'll be sure to post more information as it becomes available. In the meantime, post your own speculation in our comments section, and have a glance at Toyota's short (and non-descriptive) press release, below.
